About this recipe: This is simply simple! Some people confuse chow mein with stir fry and add lots of veg, but chow mein is a noodle dish and should be kept very simple but tasty. This does just that . . . no more trips to the takeaway after you try this seriously authentic dish!
For a saucy chow mein mix the dark, light and oyster sauce in a bowl with cornflour and enough water to make a rich gravy before stirring through the noodles. Serve with prawn crackers!
looked,smelt and tasted as good as any takeaway chow mein and very simple to make....top stuff - 29 Jan 2012
I moved to Australia and have been missing my take out chicken chow mein as they don't do it here. Not any more! A Chinese recipe on an English website, added by a Scot and served in Oz! Very easy and great results everytime. - 14 Oct 2012
